Who does not want to take a look of him or herself at a mirror? And it always brings back the nostalgia if the mirror is an old one. For an old mirror it is natural that it would be a little discolored or fade, as that adds a different charm to its character.

F.A.Q.

1. How much does it cost to resilver a mirror?
Retail: $15/Sq Ft > Length(inches) x Width(inches) divide by 144 x $15.00= Cost Minimum Charge 10 Sq Ft + $5 Re Packaging Fee for packages that need to be shipped back. For Wholesale prices contact us (Resale Number Required)
2. How do I know my mirror needs resilvering?
Most of the time it is obvious. Sometimes mirrors appear to be dirty or streaked on the front surface when the actual problem is deterioration of the old silver on the back. Clean the mirror well to determine if you have surface dirt or deterioration of the silver on the back. Unfortunately, harsh abrasives (powdered cleaners, scrubbing pads, etc.) are sometimes used by individuals in their attempt to clean the surface. The resulting scratches may become apparent when the mirror gets a new coat of silver.
3. What about touching up small areas or spots?
Unfortunately, satisfactory results are not achieved when trying to resilver portions of a mirror. The complete mirror needs to be resilvered.
4. My large bathroom mirror has deterioration on the bottom edge?
This is very common. It might not have been installed or sealed properly in the first place. Mirrors like this are sometimes large simple rectangles without bevels. Here, it may be cheaper to buy a new mirror than to have it resilvered, unless it has sentimental value. One solution for the problem is to cut off the damaged area and then remount the mirror. This can be done by your local glazier. Another possibility is to install a frame or border around the bad areas.
5. Where can I get the silver paint to touch up a mirror myself?
It doesn't exist,(at least nothing that actually works). We often see mirrors which the client has tried to touch up with silver paint. The results are disappointing. Another attempt at home repair is tin foil to the area missing the original silver. Again, this doesn't work. It is actual silver that is applied to your mirror, and it involves a process and expenses that make it impractical for the do it yourselfer to attempt.
6. What about damage on the surface of the mirror?
Clean the surface of your mirror well before delivering it. Look carefully for scratches and nicks on the surfaces of the mirror. They will be more apparent after the mirror is resilvered. Often, customers are unaware of existing damage on a mirror that has been in their home for years.
7.How should the mirror be delivered to us for resilvering?
The mirror needs to be removed from any frame. Please bring/send us just the glass. Removal is usually easy, but be careful. Use caution when doing any prying. Cover the mirror with cloth or cardboard when using any hard tools. A slip with pliers, a screw driver or other tools can chip, crack, or break the glass. not force the glass. Ease it gently from the frame.
